RIBA accredited CPD seminars on Solid Surface by CDUK
CDUK, the exclusive distributor for Corian® Solid Surface in the UK and Ireland, is now offering two new RIBA certified CPDs, in response to evolving demand within the industry and the latest developments for the material.
The new seminars, Solid Surface: Colour, Texture & Trends and Solid Surface: Architectural Form & Structure have also been tailored to address the particular needs of specific audiences within the architecture and interior design communities. Both seminars highlight differences between the various composites of solid surface, plus technical information on the manufacture, specification and supply of the original brand, together with confirmation of its key regulatory certification.
The seminars also outline characteristics and benefits ranging from creative adaptability to long-term durability, resilience, UV resistance, hygiene and sustainability. There are introductions to ways of working with the material from thermoforming to CNC to backlighting, and to the range, relevance and versatility of particular colour palettes. Both seminars also include video content to help demonstrate the inherent qualities of solid surface and how this innovative material is fabricated and fitted by expert industry partners.
Individually, the respective seminars explore solid surface in relation to certain aesthetic trends in interior design and to structure and form. Each seminar covers the vast array of applications possible for the material from public to private spaces, interior to exterior use, and whether for residential kitchens and bathrooms or for commercial environments such as retail, hospitality, healthcare and the workplace.
Solid Surface: Colour, Texture & Trends takes a close look at decorative trends and techniques from 3D texturing to translucency and to current aesthetic themes from ‘industrial’ to ‘botanical.’ The seminar includes details on the added-value of the latest sinks, basins and wash-troughs plus innovations such as integrated wireless charging.
Solid Surface: Architectural Form & Structure meanwhile, includes a series of illustrated case studies, plus technical guidance on the installation of exterior facades or interior cladding, together with fabrication considerations from thermoforming to seamless joining and damage repair.

Created to both inform and inspire, the CPDs also emphasise the levels of reliability and service inherent to working with experienced companies. They also demonstrate how certain solid surface choices can perfectly meet current demands and trends, while being a valuable investment in timeless elegance and performance.
Each seminar is accredited by RIBA, BIID and SBID. The solid surface CPDs from long-term Corian® channel partner, CDUK, are available for bookings now.
